Working with the National Gallery of Iceland as both physical structure and institution, the project investigates classification and flow in light of the seemingly fantastical. Through the creation a new temporary entrance – a liminal zone – the fauna of Iceland is invited into the museum, human and non-human animals alike.

The group show’s curatorial framework is founded on a children’s workshop in which participants imagine houses for sheep, horses, seagulls and the like, though the creation of diminutive paper maquettes. In response to these scaled down explorations, the Museum is perceived not as a model but rather a life size structure intended to accommodate animality. Marking this new function, Entrance is formed in the meeting between the architecture of the institution and the needs of it’s faunal visitors arriving by land or by air.
